After he made his 25th competitive appearance for Crawley in a man of the match performance on Tuesday against Swindon Town, 30-year-old midfielder Jack Payne has triggered an extra-year extension that will keep him at the club until the end of the 2022/23 season.
Payne has played 21 League Two games already this season for Crawley, despite a frustrating eight-week injury layoff which kept him out over the festive period.
The midfielder has also played in both the FA Cup and Carabao Cup as well as the Papa John’s Trophy, pushing his total appearances to the trigger of 25.
Manager John Yems said: “It’s typical of Jack that he has reached it with twenty games to go, it just proves what an important player he is for us and I am delighted that his deal has been extended.”
We are delighted to see Jack remain red for another season!
